Asian Age, Tuesday 27 August 2013 – Julie Sam Only six years old, Shorya Mahanot is a prodigy in the world of art. This little boy from Neemuch, MP, has painted India on the global Expressionism map. His “action” and “drip” painting techniques are much like that of his favourite artist Jackson Pollock. Shorya Mahanot recently made a splash at his first US art show, Artexpo New York, where his works received praise and were selected to be a part of a special exhibit “Best of Artexpo 2013” at Ward-Nasse Gallery in New York.

Doodles with a difference

The other artist in New York were older than me,’ he says, of his recent visit. Children are generally not allowed into art fairs in the US. So, even as a participant, six-year-old Shorya Mahanot would not have been allowed into the 35th edition of the annual Artexpo New York held in that city in March. But the organisers made an exception, because the Madhya Pradesh boy is, well, an exception. Mahanot is an abstract artist. He not only exhibited some of his works at Artexpo, some were also selected for the ‘Best of Artexpo 2013′…

Indian Child Prodigy Shorya Mahanot

Posted by on 4:59 pm in Articles | Comments Off

It seems child prodigies are becoming more common by the day. I recently mentioned the 3 year old artist prodigy Iris Grace Halmshaw and looked at what grown up artists could learn from the mini artists. Well here’s another artist prodigy, a 6 year old boy from India named Shorya Mahanot. At six years old he’s already a pro, having had his first solo exhibition at age 4. His abstract expressionist work has been compared to Jackson Pollock, which would probably make poor old Mr Greenberg roll over in his grave “In visual arts, prodigies…

India’s child Picasso enjoys a brush with fame

Posted by on 4:40 pm in Articles | Comments Off

Here’s a five-year-old whose bright and bold abstract paintings are much like those of Pablo Picasso. By Helen Pidd, The Guardian “I want to do some painting,” said the small voice underneath the dining table. “But first I want to shoot someone.” Kapow! A green foam ball pinged out from beneath the tablecloth, shortly followed by Shorya Mahanot, wielding a luminous pumpgun. Clearly pleased that he had hit one of his big sisters, Asia’s youngest abstract painter….  …

Meet India’s five-year-old ‘Picasso’

Posted by on 4:57 pm in Articles | Comments Off

Pune: Shorya Mahanot is only five-year-old but with his careless splashes of colour and strokes he has made many jaw-dropping paintings. The little genius even managed to impress renowned cartoonist RK Laxman, who gifted him an autographed brush. Inspired by his artist father and elder sisters, Shorya took to colours and wielded his first brush when he was just three-year-old. “One day my wife posted a painting on Facebook saying Shorya has made a good, abstract painting. I was in Mumbai at that time. I asked her if it was really made…

Colouring between the lines

Posted by on 6:55 pm in Articles | Comments Off

  LIKE many, many others, we were fascinated with the story of five-year-old Shorya Mahanot from Nemuch in Madhya Pradesh, perhaps the world’s youngest abstract artist. We also took with a pinch of salt the declarations of his genius, his brilliance, his earth-shattering ability to handle colour, till we got a glimpse of some of his work. We thought back to ourselves at the same age, desperately trying to keep within the outlines as we used crayons, and compared with that, we had to admit that Shorya seemed weird. So we sent off pictures…

Uncommon Talent

Adorable in his maroon kurta and black nehru jacket, five-year-old Shorya Mahanot charmed us at first sight. As restless as ever, he fidgets with the bottles of paints till he figures out exactly how he would like them arranged near the canvas. After careful arrangement and re-arrangements, he has all his paints placed in a straight line, in an order of which only he knows the algorithm and refuses to share with anyone else. He pauses only to take notice of RK Laxman, who is brought in on a revolving chair to the campus of his residence at…

Six-year-old prodigy Shorya Mahanot, who features among the world’s top three child artists, was in the city to receive blessings from Pune’s very own Common Man, RK Laxman.
